A highly portable pancake lens that’s ideal for travel and street photography. Its advanced optical design ensures great image quality, while a large f/2.8 maximum aperture allows hand-held low-light shooting. STM focusing delivers smooth, near-silent AF when capturing movies.
To give you an idea of how compact and easy to pack it is, it actually fits in a zipper pouch in my daypack that I previously had to separate the lens from the camera in order to be able to accommodate it all. It’s wide, and can really capture the scenery and has the same great bokeh effect with a fast 2.8 aperture that my 50mm has. Not to mention the build quality is also awesome, Excellent construction. Has the exact same high quality, durable frame, metal mount and solid feel as the 40mm pancake. No doubt the lens will last a long time
With the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens, you can easily produce more artistic and impactful photography thanks to a wide f/1.8 aperture that produces sharp focus on your subject and a beautiful blurred background. The build quality is one of the areas that this new 50mm improves on The 50 STM has had a massive upgrade in this area, and feels absolutely fantastic. From the moment I picked up the lens, I knew that it was a complete redesign of the old model, and it sure needed it.
And of course, the main attraction of this lens is the 1.8 aperture, The bokeh looks fantastic, chromatic aberration has been greatly reduced compared to the old version, and vignetting if almost no existent.
Compact and lightweight with a design that’s ideal for travel, this ultra-wide-angle zoom lens fits more in the frame, adding impact to landscapes, cityscapes and skies.Lets first talk about the build quality it’s made of plastic, save for optics and electronics. However, it feels solid in hand: plastics are good quality, no play in the mount or barrel and it’s nicely finished in semi-matte black.
all around Great wide angle lens for crop sensors! The motor is extremely fast and completely silent. Sharp images. Perfect for well lit outdoor images
